TAKE ME TO THE CHURCH

Take me to the church.
The town’s on fire.
Hell has let loose its demons.

Take me to the church.
The Town Hall has lost its windows.
The Dead are taking over the town.

Take me to the church.
I want to live.
I refuse to become one of The Dead.
We must run for shelter.

Take me to the church.
I can see the church.
It’s standing strong against the storm.
Its door is standing open.
Welcoming us.
Let’s go inside.

Take me to the church.
Hell is raining down upon us.
Creatures are stalking us.

Take me to the church.
The church is gone
in a puff of smoke.
It stands no more.
Only a blackened shell
of its former self.

Take me away.
The Dead have won.
They always do.

Take me away from here.
Amen.

THE DEAD GAME

    Take me to the church.
    The church is gone
    in a puff of smoke.
    It stands no more.
    Only a blackened shell
    of its former self. — this resonates with me. Your poems create very vivid pictures 🙂

      Thank you. I wrote about it in my book but this brings it more to life or death. Susanne
